New addition to the Nest collection, throw pillow handfelted from merino wool and angora. It’s angora which gives this wool cushion colour – varying from light to mid grey and light to mid brown. And since it’s classified as hair, not wool (wool coming only from sheep), it gives the surface lovely fuzzy finish.

I think oneness is a beautiful thing.
This is an-going theme; I am drawn to this word and concept:
The human desire to belong, to be part of, to be in,
not only physically but also the inner desire for mutual understanding, the total relaxation which is found in friendship and marriage..
The elements which constitute oneness and unity, but also what disturbs & breaks it.
How it manifests itself.
Few descriptions from The Free Dictionary which I like -
- the state of being one, united, in agreement
- a state or condition of perfect harmony or accord
- unison; agreement: oneness of mind
- unity of thought, feeling, aim, etc.; harmony; concord.

I have been felting again for some time now but am behind with taking photos. I hope to catch up on this front soon.
And when I go back to felt I go back to the wool as it is. I like to work with whites and grey so so very much!
Here is FOG, an infinity scarf made of finest merino, silk and alpaca. It’s now available and can be made in other sizes and also as an open scarf.
When I exhaust all colours which natural fleeces provide I hope to start adding colour to these.
